For the third and final installment of the Knowledge Shine Bright Remixed series, See-I has assembled producers from afar and hometown locals, old friends and new collaborators alike. This summer has been busy with See-I releasing several EPs and playing many shows. Looking ahead to the fall See-I will get back on the road to tour in support of the upcoming Knowledge Shine Bright Remixed album. See-I live performances are better than ever, with new material and unstoppable energy, a show crafted at the soon to be 10 year running Rockers International Wednesday night party in Washington, DC.
Remix EP 3 starts with an upbeat reworking of Musical Murder by hometown label mates Empresarios, who have stripped the track down, added percussion and then flex through a few styles, changing from house and dub to reggae throughout. A fun and creative remix which creates a sunny tropical vibe and uses Rob Myers’ original sitar parts smoothly. Two different remixes of The Chase are included, the first by Washington, DC’s own worldbeat party rockers, the Sol Power All-Stars. Their remix of The Chase slightly pitches up the tempo, creating a sizzling Afrobeat-infused house tune. Portland, Oregon’s own AfroQBen is a good friend of the Fort Knox family and also remixed The Chase. The AfroQBen remix is a deep dub reinterpretation that takes the listener on a cosmic chase through the atmosphere, smooth downtempo perfect for a late morning chill-out session. Fort Knox Recordings regular Omegaman from Sydney, Australia took on Revolution featuring vocals by Candice Mills and has created an instant classic. Omegaman has added spacey guitars, reverb and dub echoes, which spread out allowing Candice’s ethereal vocals to float down effortlessly, an epic tune of revolution.
All of the Knowledge Shine Bright Remixes have been different, and this third edition brings the party to the after hours and next morning. See-I is thrilled to be working with some of the best producers around the world and are proud of these remixes. Instrumentals of each remix are available and with a range of sounds from house, dub and reggae to downtempo these remixes are a must have for DJs and music lovers alike.
